The Long Process of Grieving a Parent with Dementia, Rev. Dr. Susan Roddey

Losing a parent to dementia is like having to say a long, slow good-bye. In this podcast, we will discuss the nature of this journey of grief and how to sustain yourself as you go through it. Join Rev. Dr. Susan Roddey, a pastoral counselor with extensive training and experience in grief counseling, and Frances Hall, Founder & Executive Director of ACAPcommunity, as they talk about this difficult journey.

This episode of The Caregiver Community is made possible by our sponsor, Pace @ Home in Hickory, NC.

While providing care for her mother, Frances S. Hall, Founder, and Executive Director of ACAPcommunity began ACAP as a monthly educational support program for fellow faculty and staff on a small NC university campus, then transitioned the program into a nationally unique, community-impact nonprofit model in 2012. With a master’s degree in higher education administration and a 30+-year career in higher education and nonprofits, Frances continues to lead the growing organization as it continues to provide information, resources support, and community for adult children and others who care for older loved ones.
